How To Make Your Carpets Stay Healthier And Last Longer

Tru Clean has been providing SW Florida with thoroughly exhaustive carpet, tile and upholstery cleaning since 2006 and the most common question we get asked is “How can I make my carpets look better longer?

Our answer to this question is to vacuum your carpets on a regular basis, at least twice a week.  The longer contaminates stay in your carpeting (dirt, oils, pet dander, sand, etc.) the more damage they create.  We’re often asked by clients if we can remove traffic lanes in their carpeting.  Traffic lanes are created by a condition known as sanding and they cannot be removed through cleaning.

Sanding is caused by repetitive walking in the same area over and over again.  As we walk across the carpets surface, any trapped contaminates such as dirt and sand stick to the bottom of our feet or shoes and create friction against the fibers surface thereby damaging it.  Once this damage occurs the “ugliness” cannot be cleaned out because what you’re seeing is damage – not dirt.  To help prevent traffic lanes you should vacuum your carpeting on a regular basis to help eliminate trapped contaminates that are harmful to your carpeting and have your carpeting professionally cleaned every 12-18 months.
